Donate $1 and Plant A Tree
American ForestsDONATE $1 and PLANT A TREE
2014 marked the beginning of our ongoing partnership withAmerican Forests.  For the 247th National Meeting & Exposition in Dallas, TX, 450 trees were planted as part of a regional reforestation and habitat restoration project in Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Reserve.  For the 248th National Meeting & Exposition in San Francisco, nearly 900 trees were planted to support the Dinkey Collaborative reforestation project located in the Sierra National Forest.  
Now you also have the opportunity to further support this effort to help clean our air and water, provide much needed habitat to local wildlife and help remove carbon dioxide form our atmosphere by donating $1 through the ACS Denver registration system.  Even if you have already registered, you can access your record again to add this option.  Your $1 can make a huge difference.  

Take the greener meeting challenge
Through our ACS Greener Meetings Program  we strive to reduce the environmental impacts of our meetings and expositions while enhancing the positive impacts on communities locally and globally. To accomplish this, we focus on three key initiatives – calculating and offsetting our carbon footprint, increasing attendee engagement, and collaborating with event partner to improve performance. 
If you are staying at the Sheraton or Westin, you can help make your stay greener by taking advantage of the 'Make a Green Choice' program.  By opting to decline housekeeping service in your room, you will receive Starwood Preferred Guest points or a food and beverage voucher.  Help minimize your environmental footprint during your stay and get rewarded! 
Join the ACS Greener Meeting Challenge and be a catalyst for positive change!

chemdraw2.jpgCAS, the world's authority for chemical information, and PerkinElmer, the global leader on improving human and environmental health, collaborated to combine the power of two leading chemistry solutions: SciFinder ® and ChemDraw ®.   The ChemDraw platform is a digital drawing tool for chemists and biologists to create publication-ready, scientifically intelligent drawings for use in ELNs, databases and publications. SciFinder is a research discovery application that provides integrated access to the world's most comprehensive and authoritative source of references, substances and reactions in chemistry and related sciences, which are collected, organized and indexed by CAS scientists.
This collaboration between two industry innovators, first announced in December 2013, allows users to draw a structure using the ChemBioDraw Ultra 14 offering and then initiate a SciFinder session to search the structure. ChemBioDraw Ultra software automatically detects whether the structure is a single substance, or the reactant or product of a reaction. Researchers can now save considerable time when using both products.
Become an Exhibitor and reserve your booth now.  The ACS National Exposition is an integral part of each meeting and presents a unique opportunity to interact with over 10,000 scientific professionals. Exhibiting options as low as $750 are available.  Limited space available.

marvin-caruthers-1-23.jpgMarvin Caruthers to Speak at Senior Chemists Breakfast
Marvin H. Caruthers, Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry and Chemistry at the University of Colorado, Boulder will be the keynote speaker during the Senior Chemists Breakfast on Tuesday, March 24 at 7:30 - 9:30 AM.    Prof. Caruthers' interests include nucleic acids chemistry and biochemistry.  Approximately 30 years ago, the methodologies that are used today for chemically synthesizing DNA were developed in his laboratory and incorporated into so-called gene machines for the purpose of synthesizing DNA used by biochemists, biologists, and molecular biologists for many research applications.  More recently his laboratory has developed methods for RNA chemical synthesis and for the synthesis of DNA/RNA on chips.  Prof. Caruthers will present Wearing Two Hats-Basic Research and Biotechnology.  Ticket price is $20.00 for the breakfast and can be purchased through meeting registration.

Polymer Science Experiments for K-12 Teachers

Morning Mail: Senate censures Brandis over Triggs, Iraq forces move on Isis, Netanyahu in Washington

Guardian Australia's Morning Mail
Tuesday 3 March 2015
Australian news and politics

Tony Abbott has expressed “an abundance of confidence” in George Brandis after the Senate censured him – and also accused of being unfit to hold the office of attorney general – over his treatment of Australian Human Rights Commission president Gillian Triggs.

Almost a year after the Abbott government’s first budget was brought down, savings worth almost $19bn over the next four years – and $112bn over the next 10 years – have been announced but not yet legislated, a Coalition backbencher has revealed.

Schools deemed at risk of racist incidents or lone-wolf terrorism attacks will be given an extra $18m to boost security, in what the justice minister Michael Keenan says is a “confidence-building measure”.

Australia is in the midst of an “unprecedented level of industrial action” within the public service, says trade union, as workers refuse to accept government pay offers that trade away working conditions for a pay rise of 1% or less.

The government faces more chaos in the Senate afterthe Palmer United Party announced it would abstain from voting on the Coalition’s bills “until government chaos ended”.
Around the world

Iraq’s armed forces, backed by Shia militia, have begun a fresh campaign to wrest control and “liberate” Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit, and other Isis strongholds north of Baghdad.

An undaunted Binyamin Netanyahu has defended his decision to defy the White House and accept an invitation from Republican leader John Boehner to address Congress on Tuesday on the risks of a nuclear deal with Iran: “Today, we are no longer silent; today, we have a voice. Tomorrow, as prime minister of the one and only Jewish state, I plan to use that voice,”

The Guardian view on Netanyahu in Washington: Israel’s PM is snubbing the White House in the search for election votes back home. It's a big gamble.

Hundreds of parents in north-west Pakistan have been arrested and jailed on charges of endangering public security after refusing to give their children polio vaccinations.

Bangladeshi authorities have arrested a radical Islamist four days after secular American blogger Avijit Roy was hacked to death at a crowded book fair in Dhaka.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Today show host Lisa Wilkinson has said she's appalled that purple ribbons tied to the gates of Knox Grammar School, to show solidarity with sexual abuse victims, have been removed.The Australian reports that support for the NT government has crashed, with the Country Liberal Party team and its unpopular leader facing electoral wipeout, according to an ­independent poll.

One last thing

When a supermarket in Paris applied to convert part of its cellar for extra storage space they expected to find a few bodies, built as it is on the site of a medieval hospital. What they didn't expect to find was more than 200 bodies in a series of mass graves.
